I've had my ipod touch (1gen) for awhile now and it started randomly shutting off while i was charging and it also misreads the battery level. The battery life seems fine, but charging can take a long time having to start it back after it shuts off. I had it play music all last night and it never shut off but when i charged it in my car this morning it shut off after a few minutes (same with computer). The device says it has random battery levels too, like it may say half one minute then say full the next. I tried a recovery through itunes it didn't fix it. It's also out of warranty. Is this just a weird case of needing a new battery or something more?
